Field trips

  • Field trips are no longer allowed to come out of Title 1 funds and must come out of local money.There is enough local money for each grade to take 1 field trip and the school would be able to cover the cost of the busses.Parents are going to be required to pay for the admission cost and all field trips request must be submitted to the office for approval.If a field trip request is submitted and approved prior to 10/31/15 the school will still be possibly able to help with cost of admission for students but all field trips must apply to TEKS.
